How long will the fields be ready,
how far will the harvest go . . .
how much longer will we reap?
None of us, will ever know.
But, we must continue to toil,
to sow, water and to feed . . .
we must be willing to continue
to plant for God, the Good seed.
No one said it’s an easy job,
this sowing and gathering
for it takes a lot to keep . . .
wayward seeds from scattering.
But, if we want a full crop,
one that will yield a rich return
we need to save the scattered
less they might be left to burn.
We must keep protecting,
the fields from all disease
even if each sower . . .
has to get down on their knees.
How far will the harvest go,
only the Good Lord knows
and it is our job and duty . . .
to see that His harvest grows!
“Say not ye, There are yet four months,
and then cometh harvest? behold,
I say unto you, Lift up your eyes,
and look on the fields; for they are
white already to harvest.”
